KINGS 12 [Sunday sermon- Church unlimited too]

But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.” Gal.3:13

TEACHING [Past posts below]


Rehoboam ascends to the throne- yet God fulfills the prophecy of Ahijah- given to Jeroboam in the last chapter-
1Kings 11:31 And he said to Jeroboam, Take thee ten pieces: for thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, Behold, I will rend the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon, and will give ten tribes to thee:

The kingdom is rent [10 tribes] and given to Jeroboam.
Yet- Jeroboam and Israel did try to make amends- they made a request of the new king-
1Kings 12:3 That they sent and called him. And Jeroboam and all the congregation of Israel came, and spake unto Rehoboam, saying,
1Kings 12:4 Thy father made our yoke grievous: now therefore make thou the grievous service of thy father, and his heavy yoke which he put upon us, lighter, and we will serve thee.
They asked for a lighter yoke- which is a type of the true Son of David who was yet to come-

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Matt. 11

The king tells them to depart- for 3 days- and then come again-
1Kings 12:5 And he said unto them, Depart yet for three days, then come again to me. And the people departed.
Jesus as the true Son of David departed for 3 days- in the tomb-
New International Version
For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matt. 12:40

And his men did come meet him at the appointed time-

New Living Translation
And now, go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and he is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there. Remember what I have told you.” Matt. 28:7

Rehoboam consults with 2 groups of men- the elders who ruled with his father [Solomon] and the younger generation he himself grew up with.

He rejects the advice of the older generation- and takes the bad advice of his contemporaries-
1Kings 12:6 And king Rehoboam consulted with the old men, that stood before Solomon his father while he yet lived, and said, How do ye advise that I may answer this people?
1Kings 12:7 And they spake unto him, saying, If thou wilt be a servant unto this people this day, and wilt serve them, and answer them, and speak good words to them, then they will be thy servants for ever.
1Kings 12:8 But he forsook the counsel of the old men, which they had given him, and consulted with the young men that were grown up with him, and which stood before him:
But this was from the Lord-
1Kings 12:24 Thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not go up, nor fight against your brethren the children of Israel: return every man to his house; for this thing is from me. They hearkened therefore to the word of the LORD, and returned to depart, according to the word of the LORD.
Jeroboam takes rule of the 10 tribes- and out of fear- institutes idolatry into the kingdom-
1Kings 12:27 If this people go up to do sacrifice in the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, then shall the heart of this people turn again unto their lord, even unto Rehoboam king of Judah, and they shall kill me, and go again to Rehoboam king of Judah.
1Kings 12:28 Whereupon the king [Jeroboam] took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

It is interesting that he actually quotes Aaron- and God- in this sin-
Yes- in exodus 32 we read-
Exodus 32:4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
Exodus 32:7 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:
Exodus 32:8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
Yet- it was a distortion of the will of God- even though the words themselves were contained in the scripture.

I taught more on the video- but wanted to simply comment on the types and shadows that speak to the true rule of God- and how Jesus will be the king who will lighten the yoke.

He left- for 3 days [in the grave] and when he met us again- he came with a lighter yoke [than the law] and he was among us as one who served- the advice the older man gave to Rehoboam- lighten the yoke- and serve.

Thru his own bearing of the Cross for the sins of men he fulfilled the types-

The advice of the older men was-
1Kings 12:7 And they spake unto him, saying, If thou wilt be a servant unto this people this day, and wilt serve them, and answer them, and speak good words to them, then they will be thy servants for ever.
Rehoboam rejected it-
Yet Jesus himself will fulfill it down the road-

26 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.
27 For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.
Lk. 22

Rehoboam’s father was driven- he had goals for the kingdom- and did accomplish them.
Yet- he was hard on the people of God- he ruled over them with a iron hand- so to speak-
1Kings 12:4 Thy father made our yoke grievous:
1Kings 12:10 And the young men that were grown up with him spake unto him, saying, Thus shalt thou speak unto this people that spake unto thee, saying, Thy father made our yoke heavy, but make thou it lighter unto us; thus shalt thou say unto them, My little finger shall be thicker than my father’s loins.
1Kings 12:11 And now whereas my father did lade you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke: my father hath chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.
The thing that Solomon forgot- was the advice that the elders gave to his son- to be a servant of the people-
1Kings 12:7 And they spake unto him, saying, If thou wilt be a servant unto this people this day, and wilt serve them, and answer them, and speak good words to them, then they will be thy servants for ever.
Shepherding the sheep does entail being tough at times- but the end goal is to lead them into the fullness of what God has for them-
1Peter 5:1 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
1Peter 5:2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
1Peter 5:3 Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
The younger men felt the answer was to go even harder on the people-
1Kings 12:11 And now whereas my father did lade you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke: my father hath chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.
In the end- the people walked away- and the prophecy of Ahijah was fulfilled-
1Kings 11:35 But I will take the kingdom out of his son’s hand, and will give it unto thee, even ten tribes. [Some sites see here https://ccoutreach87.blogspot.com/2022/09/kings-12-text.html ]
